It's official, the place to hang with your dog on Saturdays is Alma Park St Kilda. Home to the Hank Marvin Markets, a haven for foodies, dogs, and gift buying.
Matt and Willie taking a beer break - picnic rugs are provided by the market
After hearing so much about this fantastic South side hangout we decided to go check it out. Over two fine days in December we meet loads of wicked dogs and their owners, made new friends and ate till we popped! Oh yeah... we dressed a tonne of stylin pups too..
Why we love it? Hank Marvin is all about good food. Including organic produce, a rotating choice from Melbourne's best food trucks, great covered seating areas with tables and of course room to sprawl in the park with free picnic rugs provided. There's activities for the kids, live music + dj's and dogs... so many dogs. Alma park is dog friendly so your best mate can even be off lead.
While there's plenty of delicious human food, dogs are also catered for by The Canine Wellness kitchen. These guys are there every Saturday with healthy pre made raw meals and stacks of dried treats. Willie dog would also like to recommend their yum bone broth dog beer! Cheers!
